Book Review: Foundations of Information Ethics
Canadian Journal of Academic Librarianship
This review analyzes John T. F. Burgess and Emily J. M. Knox's Foundations of Information Ethics (2019). Foundations of Information Ethics is an excellent guidebook throughout its 156 pages. Burgess and Knox have gathered an impressive group of authors to provide an introduction to the complex field of information ethics. As we continue to develop indepth online infrastructure and communities, and as monolithic corporations gather data on global citizens, information ethics will have increased significance. Given this context, Foundations of Information Ethics provides a much-needed foundation on which more literature can be published in the future.
